    I did all this starting Thursday evening...just finished! Toytec ultimate lift, TC UCA, 17" Moto Metal 951s and 285/70/17 BFGoodrich KM2s, alignment, and a quick wash!

    I think I picked the hottest weekend of the year! I did it all myself in a single car garage! I've never attempted anything like this so I'm pretty proud! Thanks to Chris4x4 for all the write-ups and info in other threads!

    Looks like your uniballs on the UCA's are maxed out, do you have a spacer on top of that coilover?

    Thanks guys! Will post level pics tomorrow. It raised the front like 4 inches but I didnt change the preset coilovers. I figure it will settle. It says its preset to 2.5 to 3 inches not sure why I got 4 inches.

    Haha, that's probably a good thing you have aftermarket UCA's than.
